Sort-of Kimchi Hot Pot

Sort-of Kimchi Hot Pot

Use up the leftovers in your refrigerator with this hot pot, each amount is up to you.

Ingredients: 1 serving

1 scoop
Ground pork
10 g
Chinese cabbage
1 leaf
Assorted mushrooms
1/4 packet
Green onion
5 cm
Bean sprouts
a small amount
1/4 block
2 teaspoons
Sesame oil
To taste
The green part of thin green onions
2 stalks' worth
300 ml


1. Put the water and mentsuyu sauce in a pot to make the soup. Bring to a boil. When the soup is boiling add the ground pork, kimchi and cabbage, then add the mushrooms, green onion and bean sprouts.
2. Put on a lid. When the soup is simmering, add the noodles only from a packet of instant ramen.
3. The ramen I used is this. When the soup comes to a boil again it's done. Drizzle in some sesame oil and scatter with chopped green onion to finish.
4. I made a single-serving ramen hot pot, in an attempt to think of different ways to have instant ramen.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made this for lunch on a day off. I used the leftover cut up vegetables from a hot pot we had for dinner the night before, so all I needed to do was to add them. You can use leftovers, even kimchi that's turned rather sour. It was an easy and warming lunch.
